In a shocking incident, a man allegedly killed his wife after she refused to have sex with him and later had intercourse with the corpse, police said on Saturday.
Subash flew into a fit of rage after his wife spurned his attempts to have intercourse, ridiculing his failure to run the family with a steady income.
He then allegedly strangled her with a skipping rope and had sex with the body. The incident came to light when the children found their mother's body lying on the floor. They informed relatives who in turn alerted the police.
Subash was later arrested, police said adding that the couple had been married for ten years and quarreled frequently. They were both workers.
